Top tennis players Federer, Ivanovic to play at Olympics
The International Tennis Federation used the ATP and WTA rankings as a guide to determine who gets the 56 direct spots in the men's and women's singles competitions. Six of the remaining eight spots in each tournament were given out by the ITF's Olympic Committee.
Each country, however, was limited to a maximum of six players in each tournament, with up to four competing in singles and up to two teams in doubles.
The Olympic tennis tournament runs Aug. 10-17.
